online sort of a new solar energy source or somebody wanted to tap in this in this case it's north star solar energy, * what is the problem that gets disrupted. they're feeding into our system, our transmission line to create that even level of energy, that creates a problem? is that what happens? >> if it's out of phase with our electricity delivery, if it's a spike in energy, any one of those things can actually adversely affect the delivery system and cause failures that were totally unanticipated. it's not that the energy is bad. it has to be lined up exactly with the existing energy sources so that there is not frankly a widespread blackout as a result of some change in phase or wavelength of what they provided into the system. >> so, the mitigation money is really intended to make sure we sure up our transmission lines to deal with those surges just to make sure we don't have widespread blackouts or others in our genesis at theverctiontion, correct? >> that's correct. >> okay. and other entities are receiving this kind of mitigation also? >> yes. electric utilities, existing

devastating impact on the united states because we still get a large part of our energy from the region. i traveled to azerbaijan an armenian in early september. and i also stopped in georgia and met with the president. when i talked to these leaders, iran was one of the things that came up at the very beginning, because they'll feel the influence and the aggressive attitude underneath cover so to speak of iran. in particular, i think azerbaijan feels a great deal of concern, and when i talked to the president, members of parliament and others, it was readily apparent to me that they thought that there ought to be closer ties between azerbaijan and the united states, and georgia, and hopefully armenia. because iran is really trying to destabilize or undermine those governments are we believe that is their long-term goal. iran has been involved in terrorism as we know for some time. it's partly unique in that area. we have seen the i-beam regime operating through organizations such as republican guard and employ such tactics around the globe including right here in washington, d.c. howev

lawmakers deciding how to dole out money to help schools become more energy efficient. if we have the latest on what is happening now that prop 39 is state law. >> we want to be first in line. somehow. some way. >>reporter: principal greg thomas pleading his case to law make investigators give his campus some of the state new energy retrofit money. 73 percent of california public schools are more than 25 years old and in need of the funding badly to upgrade or replace windows, inefficient lighting and old air conditioning heating systems fichlt we can look at energy efficiency then you are having savings year over year over year and then you will have more money visible for those things. >>reporter: the costs are staggering. more than 10,000 public schools in california together spend 700 million dollars a year on energy. that's how much they spend on all supplies. that's to voteers who aprove proposition 39 disadvantage schools will now be able to pay for energy retrofit. proposition 39 closes tax loop hole that mostly benefited out of state corporations. it's a billion dollar a cont

there would be a challenge for that. we observed that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous

for renewable energy. all that is important. we have to keep that going. that will get hard because we will face is demographics. that is my 74th birthday on april 7. i am aware of the and aging population which i have become and we are an aging population relative to what we were. luckily, we have millions of fresh arrivals that are younger and are energetic and they come from all over the world. we have to make sure our education system lifts them to their highest aspirations. when the society ages, it tends to -- it declines. that is the big demographic imperative. i was reviewing one of my favorite books on the roman republic. how did this village on the tiber grow to be the absolute leader of the known world in a few hundred years? it expanded its territory by plunder, by what ever. details. it was not pretty. [laughter] it added people, it kept getting bigger and incorporated the people and to roman citizenship. it became very consolidated, expanding group of energetic people. and they'll work. they were not just a bunch of talkers, they were doing. -- there were doers. -- the
